MY World: Global Youth Engagement on Post-2015 MDGs

Commitment by

United Nations Foundation

In 2013, The UN Foundation committed to help MY World, a global survey for a better world developed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Millennium Campaign (UNMC), reach 400,000 young people in Brazil, China, Ghana, India, Jordan, and the United States. This global survey enables youth to express their opinions on the most important issues they would like the post-2015 agenda to address, elevates the participation of youth, and increases political commitment in at least the six focus countries. With a focus on reaching young people in countries in which a high percentage of the world's poor live, this commitment will expand the initiative in one country in each of six geographic regions of the world and heighten the youth voice in the post-2015 agenda.
